Chefs Jean-Luc Boulay and Arnaud Marchand, who are both revered in this town, delight patrons with elegant interpretations of Nordic cuisine inspired by the boreal (northern) forests of the world. A mix of locals celebrating special occasions and tourists fresh from shopping rue St-Jean dine on bison tartare, braised beef ravioli with candied red cabbage, and salmon in a flavorful cranberry glaze. Classic desserts have been reinvented in Nordic fashion: iced nougat with cloudberries is one example. The somber color scheme, rustic-meets-modern graphics, and dark wood trim make this one of the more sophisticated bistros in the neighborhood.
